Stillness & Liveness in Choreography
Sunday, August 4 | 11:30am
Co-presented by Base and On the Boards
This talk will center around Morgan Thorson
’s work Still Life
that uses the gallery space as a container for an endurance-based dance work that at times functions like a slow moving still life and at other times resembles an ensemble dance installation. Thorson will be in conversation with On the Boards’ Artistic Director and Curator, Rachel Cook
and Base co-founder and Choreographer, Dayna Hanson
